    I'll begin with my pick for best Gilmour solo......






    And a very close second.......

    There is no arguing that their older stuff is legendary, but I was 16 when The Division Bell came out. I remember driving to the mall with a couple of friends to pick it up the day it released. A highly underrated album.

      "One of These Days" got me hooked when I was young, maybe 12 or so. Never saw them live- wasn't old enough to see them pre-split, I guess. Side note: "Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking" was one of my favorite albums for a looooong time.

            Live at Pompei is simply fantastic Harly!
            Acually "epic" is the word that comes to mind.
            Here's the director's cut:



            PS. Pink Floyd is the definition of "headphone music".

            I tend to agree that their older stuff, ie. early 70's right after Syd left was the best, but....I rate Learning to Fly as one of my favorite songs ever.

                @Warlab - I could not agree more on Live at Pompei! I like watching it in my media room on the 110 inch screen while drinking some Jack Daniels Black Label! :)

                As for Division Bell, I remember going to that concert in Houston at the Astrodome. It was EPIC! The next day.... some lame ass critic posted a review saying... "It (The Division Bell Album) sounded like every other Pink Floyd Album....." HELLO! Of course it does...and thats what makes it awesome!!! Too many groups change their sound to meet the current sound (70's 80's 90's etc) but Floyd rocked on true to their unique and trademark sound.

                I actually like the Syd Barrett days.... you have to be in the "right" mood to listen to the music, but it has its place. :)

                  Pink Floyd died the day Roger Waters left.

                  Who was born in a house full of pain
                  Who was trained not to spit in the fan
                  Who was told what to do by the man
                  Who was broken by trained personnel
                  Who was fitted with collar and chain
                  Who was given a pat on the back
                  Who was breaking away from the pack
                  Who was only a stranger at home
                  Who was ground down in the end
                  Who was found dead on the phone
                  Who was dragged down by the stone.

                  nuff said.............

                    There is no doubt that Roger Waters was a huge part of Pink Floyd, but I would not say the group died the day he left. To do so would lesson the contributions made by Wright and Mason, both of whom were a huge part as well. David Gilmour and Roger Waters had two different views for Floyd, Gilmour wanted a "balance" between melody and lyrics, while Waters was all about the lyrics as is evident in the post above. No one can arque that Gilmour and Waters, despite their differences, created incredible music together.

                      Should've changed the name of the band, that's all I'm saying.

                        Some of my favorites from their last album. :(



                        I especially enjoy the guitar solo in this one, seems angry for some reason. ;)
